Surname Maps

Home         Index



The maps and information in this section were originally extracted from the spatial literacy surname profiler study
carried out at University College London by Daryl Lloyd, Richard Webber and Paul Longley.

I asked in 2006, without reply, for permission to reproduce parts here.
As my mother used often to say, misinterpreting Sir Thomas More, silence means consent.

The study has since been rebranded several times and the last known (2010) host was publicprofiler.org.
Run by Professor Longley, it appears to contain much fascinating information, but parts of the site are not always available.

The Mosaic UK consumer classification system is produced by Experian
and is hilarious or disgusting or necessary - depending on your point of view.
Are you Group A  "Rupert & Felicity" or Group G  "Wayne & Leanne" ?

Explanations of the sub-groups used on the surname maps are no longer free to download
but you should be able to work out where they are coming from, even if you do not agree with your classification.



I have included all of the main lines plus frequent surnames and some variants.
Alphabetically, after SMITH, which was in 1881 and again in 1998, the most common surname in Britain.

The spatial literacy site had some interesting ethnicity information
but almost every surname listed below has a better than 98% chance of English origin
and a better than 99% chance of British origin and is therefore not included.
